Mohanlal the complete actor
Mohanlal the complete actor
Every time i see mohanlal movies,he just amazed me again and again.For me, Mohanlal is the most versatile actors of all times in Indian cinema, who can do justice to any kind of roles given to him, be it the "sethumadhavan" in Kireedam or "Dasan" in Nadodikkattu or "Kunhikuttan" (Kathakali artist) in Vanaprastham.He has an amazing talent of touching the hearts of people through his natural acting.He is an actor with the ability to effectively portray the character's inner feelings and emotions and express what the director wants, very fast and convincingly. You can feel the pain and joy of the character he portrays on the screen. Many people say there is nothing much to act in that role, because they never 'felt' the acting.That's why he is known as the best natural actor in the country.
